Subject Error 'Unable to complete network request' situation
Author rodbracher

I have a tIBODatabase object - called db. Linked to it is a tiboquery
with the sql 'Select * from mytable'.

I connect with the db.path = \\server\d\mydb.gdb. I can then open the

Now if I connect the db, then PULL OUT my network cable from its plug
(I use tcp\ip) then I try to open tiboquery I get -

"Unable to compete network request to host. Error writing to the
connection. The specified network name is no longer specified"

I expect this. But - the db.connected property is still true. If I
then put the network cable back in - I cannot do any of - disconnect
the database and connect again, or open the tiboquery - always
getting the identical error mentioned above.

How can I re-establish the network connection ?

A variation to this - If I connect the db, PULL OUT the network
cable, put it back in, then open the tiboquery - it works fine.
